Our Lady of Lebanon, Jounieh

(4.7/5 based on 600+ reviews on the web)
Looking out over the bay of Jounieh toward Beirut, Our Lady of Lebanon attracts Christian and Muslim pilgrims from around the world. Standing atop a majestic spiral staircase/stone base, the 8 m (26.2 ft) bronze statue of the Virgin Mary encloses a monumental 100 seat-shrine located underneath. Ride the cable car to the top of the hill, located 650 m (2132.5 ft) above sea level, then climb the sloping 19th-century stairway to the base of the statue, where a panoramic view of the city rewards your efforts.

  • Very beautiful shrine, very nice view of the city of Jounieh and the ample Bay of Jounieh is well visible.un Board use the cable car because the view is breathtaking. For good taste the beauty of the place a visit in the evening or during the night is recommended, to the sound of classical music, and under a starry sky feels imbued by the magic of the place.

  • From this point, you can see very far also, it's interesting, because there is an example of the Lebanese (Christian) piety.

  • Nice site with good views. It is quite a hike to the top though so don't forget to bring water!
  • The statue is very cool to visit. Has an excellent view of the Mediterranean. The church is not very impressive.
  • Amazing place to visit. Dont miss it.
  • Stunning views over Central Lebanon and a very calm atmosphere around the shrine and churches. Definitely a must-see for all tourists, even if you're not religious.
  • 👍🏻 Wonderfull panoramic view 😍
